Challenge #77

Hi friends of TIME OUT!

Thank you everyone who played along in our previous challenge, Inspired by Words. Don't forget to come back next Wednesday to see if you are one of the winners! 

Now it's time for one of our popular Home Sweet Home Photo Inspirations. We are inspired by home decor in these challenges... And this time only one amazing wall has enough to inspire us!

There's so so so SO many possibilities to be inspired here! Let's see... The colors, the patterns and shapes, the houses, trees, clouds, birds, balloons, stars, the banner... The list is almost never ending! :)  

Our DT has made fun samples for you using products by STAMPlorations, our sponsor! 
There's two prizes on offer:

a 10 $ voucher for our winner, voted by DT
a stamp set prize for one randomly chosen player: choose from the stamp sets the DT has used!

Amazing prizes, right!

Let's have a look at how our DT and our talented guest designer KandA have been inspired by the photo. If you haven't visited KandA Creative Moments before, you are in for a treat! She makes such beautiful card designs you will definitely want to check her out!

Our design team had super fun playing with STAMPlorations products and we want to thank Shery, the owner of STAMPlorations, most kindly for her generosity! 

Now it's your turn to take TIME OUT and craft! The challenge runs until Wednesday the 1st of March 5 pm GMT. Happy crafting!

Challenge #76 Inspired by Words

Hi All,

Ready to take some Time Out?

We have our 'Inspired by Words' challenge and the words are:

'Friends are connected heart to heart, distance and time can't break them apart'

We thought this was the perfect phrase for us all. We may not all know each other in real life but crafting connects us, no matter where we live.

You can use any of these words to inspire you or the whole phrase. 

Plenty of words here to play with-do you need more Valentine's cards, or a card for a dear friend, perhaps you could use connect, distance, time??? So many words to play with. We are looking forward to what you come up with.

We have the wonderful CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sponsoring this challenge with a $25 gift voucher for our winner. All our DT have used stamps from their store-we loved creating with them.

Challenge #75 CASE With Your Own Twist

Hi all!
Welcome to the second challenge of 2017! We have one of our CASE challenges for you and this time we are CASEing the wonderful Ksenija. Her blog Sweet Kobylkin is surely familiar to many of you: Ksenija belongs to several design teams and her artsy CAS designs are very inspiring. Let's give a warm welcome to Ksenija!

"Hello! My name is Ksenija aka Sweet Kobylkin. Today I am very delighted to join Time Out Challenge blog as a Guest Designer. I make cards and enjoy Clean and Simple style from pure minimalism which I call Hard CAS to soft Mixed Media. I often try new materials, supplies, and techniques and write about my experience in my blog Sweet Kobylkin and Instagram account @sweetkobylkin. For this card I used a new trick - heat embossed one edge of the panel with red tinsel embossing powder. I liked the effect, and you will see soon more of my cards with this delicate embellishment. I wish you all inspiration and joy of creativity. "

Now, Ksenija's amazing card for us:

Isn't this card pretty? You could be inspired by the colors, the layout, the theme, the tone on tone background, the narrow heat embossed red strip... You name it! As always own twist are allowed here at TIME OUT so you could for example totally transform the colors to something different. The most important thing is to be inspired by Ksenija and to have fun! 

We are sponsored by Happy Little Stampers. The DT voted winner will receive a $15 voucher for HLS store. Thank you for this awesome prize, Happy Little Stampers

Our guest designer this time is the fabulous Marjan. Her blog is full of creative cards with various styles, do not miss any of it, click HERE!
